[Written by Zita Starkie]

Oh fair planet that I live upon,
I have plundered you too long,
I have wished for more than my fair share,
And now it's gone so wrong.

Chorus
My wants, my wants, my foolish wants,
Never thought to keep in check,

I have robbed your beauty fair,
I've wasted all your energy,
And now I've laid you bare,

Kept no ceiling on my desires,
Let them burn as raging fires,
But all the while I knew inside,
My actions would be decried,

4. All Comes Back To Me
[Written by Richard Braithwaite]

I may not know the answers
To the questions I should know,
And I may not always be the best,
But it doesn't go to show,
That one thing that I do know,
And its plain for all to see,
Everything I do and say, it all comes back to me,

My Friends all tell me
'Its ok, to do just as I please',
No need to think before you speak,
Been doing it for years,
But don't join the crowd just to belong,
'Cause no one else is gonna sing your song,
Everything I do and say, it all comes back to me,

Some people say I will live my own way,
So don't tell me what I should do,
But time waits for no one, it's never too late,
To start life shining on you,

Now don't get me wrong, it ain't all bad,
That isn't what I say,
If you do good then you'll feel fine,
And good will come your way,
But this is truth and truth I know,
Is plain for all to see,
Everything I do and say, it all comes back to me,
Everything I do and say, it all comes back to me
Everything I do and say, it all comes back to me

He said you'd better move on,
And see that you were wrong, (Repeat)

Should sing another song (Repeat X3)

6. Going Nowhere Fast
[Written by Zita Starkie]

I've gotta change my life,
I'm going nowhere fast,
I'm gonna take a risk,
And finish with the past,
Not feeling good inside,
No matter what I've tried,
Been basing all my actions on my foolish pride,

Introspection, deep reflection,

Sitting here it's come quite clear,
Another course I need to steer,
Feeling like I'm missing out,
Gonna make a turn about,

Left a trail of devastation in my wake,
Never watched my actions
As their hearts would break,
Been busy blaming others
When I don't feel right,
Not caring how I hurt them kept it out of sight,

Introspection, deep reflection

Sitting here its come quite clear
Another course I need to steer,
Feeling like I'm missing out
Gonna make a turn about, (Repeat)

Left a trail of devestation in my wake…

Courage my friend,
You know the pain will end,
Courage my friend,
Be there to help you mend.

8. Strive For Right
[Written by Zita Starkie]

Chorus
I'm gonna strive for right this day,
I'm gonna strive for right this night,
I'm gonna lift those clouds of grey,
I'm gonna use the sun's bright ray,

Dreams come true,
When you follow them through,

So much to change, to rearrange,
Do you know the world is asking for you,
To win the fight, to bring in right,
So follow it through!

(Repeat from start)

I'm gonna strive for right this day,
I'm gonna strive for right this night,
I'm gonna lift those clouds of grey,
I'm gonna use the sun's bright ray,

Dreams come true,
When you follow them through,


9. The Way That I Am
[Written by Richard Braithwaite]

You're there to help me on my way
A hand to guide, a place to stay,
You'll be there standing right by my side,
When nobody believes in me,
Could change the world but they can't see
You'll be there standing 'till the very end,

When darkness comes into my day
Can't see the light, you come my way ...

Chorus
Did you ever know the way I feel,
Did I ever tell you how much you,
Mean to me, now I see,
That you love me the way that I am,

So when we loose that love inside,
Let's take a chance, don't try to hide,
Then nobody can take that love away,
And when we fight I will return,
There's much for us, for us to learn,
We'll learn to leave it, leave it all behind,

And when you come into my day,
You shine on me to light my way...

Chorus
Did you ever know the way that I feel,
Did I ever tell you how much you,
Mean to me, now I see,
That you love me the way that I am.


10. Playing Each Level
[Written by Zita Starkie]

Like a multi-dimensional game of chess,
I'm playing each level at my best,
Not seeking praise not seeking rest,
Doing what's right,
Though sometimes the answer's a little out of sight,

I know it's not the time yet,
There's some work left to do,
The seeds of dreams laid long ago,
I must see them through,
Doing what's right it can be hard,
But it's the path I'm trying to tread,
Saying if I don't meet my dreams just now,
I'll meet them later instead.

Chorus
'Cos I like to play it from the heart,
I like to, it makes me feel so good,
I like to, while I play the part,
There's dancing in my heart,

(Repeat from start)

There's dancing in my heart,
Doing what's right, doing what's right…

11. Each Thread I Add
[Written by Zita Starkie]

I've heard so many versions,
Don't know what to believe,
Lies we weave, lies we weave, (Repeat)

Chorus
Each thread I add I now believe,
The truth gets harder to retrieve, (Repeat)

Exaggerate to get the stage
Add another headline page
Lies we weave, lies we weave. (Repeat)

Chorus
Each thread I add I now believe,

Scared in case I go on trial,
I'll hide the truth behind a smile,
Lies we weave, lies we weave, (Repeat)

Chorus (Repeat X4)

12. The Same As You And Me
[Written by Richard Braithwaite]

I woke up now, what a lovely day,
Thought I'd take a walk then I'd be on my way,
Then I remembered on which side of the land,
I couldn't take a walk because of who I am,

Chorus
So don't be afraid now,
'Cause things aren't always what they seem,
We're different on the outside,
But we're all the same within,

Paranoia, it just don't spread around,
Been so much hating
'Cause we make a different sound,
We have the power, so just don't let it be,
Then you'll remember they're the same as you and me,

Chorus
So don't be afraid now,
'Cause things aren't always what they seem,
We're different on the outside,
But we're all the same within,

So don't be a stranger,
Look beyond what you can see,
To find that there's no danger,
They're just the same as you and me,

Drawn a line now, so just don't step across,
This is my land, that is yours, go on get lost,
Sooner or later, somebody wants some more,
That we borrowed from the earth can't stop the war,

Chorus
So don't be afraid now…

They're just the same as you,
They're just the same as you and me.

13. Swallow
[Written by Zita Starkie]

Look out your window,
And you'll see me coming on,
Beyond the mist, beyond the rain,
Even beyond the sun,
I don't want to excite it,
But neither will I hide it,

Chorus
'Till you and I are free,
I'll search on for my tree,
On through the sky,
I'll weep and yes I'll cry,
'Till we are free,
I'll soar and dive and rise,
'Till we can fly,
I'll try and try and try,

When you're going through the hard times,
The struggle seems so long,
The way so rough and turbulent,
You've got to be more strong,
It's not easy growing tough,
When it's really getting rough,
And sometimes it seems,
As though you've had enough,

Chorus x2
'Till you and I are free…

Look out your window,
And you'll see me coming on.

14. We'll Be Together
[Written by Jyoti Evans]

Chorus
We'll be together, together as one,
Striving to the future, all Nations are one,
No need for hunger or hate and regret,
Gotta work together, we'll be as one once more,

Verse
All we were concerned with,
Was how much we could get,
No reaching out to others,
No love or care we'd share,


The years of war must now pass by,
Rekindling our love, no more we'll cry,
Our vision of the world shall soon come true,

Chorus
We'll be together, together as one.
Striving to the future, all Nations as one,
No need for hunger, or hate and regret,
Gotta work together, we'll be as one once more,

Verse
All we were concerned with…

Chorus x2
We'll be together, together as one…

15. Live The Dream
[Written by Zita Starkie]

Verse
Of all the things I want to do,
I want to help, I want to work,
I want to see it through,

To help the poor and old,
The injured, young and sick,
To give another hope,
But I must do it quick,

'Cos if I wait around too long,
I'll never get to sing my song, (Repeat)

(Repeat from start)

Chorus
I wanna live my dream,
I wanna change the world - not dream,
I wanna live my dream,
I wanna swim - not drift down stream, (Repeat)

(All the things I want, all the things I want)

Chorus
I wanna live my dream…
